Polk Sheriff’s Charities, Inc. is sponsoring a free turkey giveaway Saturday, November 19, 2022, at three Polk County locations (see below). We are joined in this effort once again by The Freedom Tour volunteer organization based in Lake Wales whose mission it is to provide quality food and love to those in need.
The turkeys will be distributed one per family, one per vehicle on a first-come, first-served basis while supplies last. No identification or pre-qualification will be required to receive a turkey.
